Research in the School of Architecture & Design

Academics in the School of Architecture & Design conduct high-quality research at an international level, combining traditional scholarship with active professional practice. 


Architecture research is undertaken through research groups and clusters, and is impacting the professional landscape, with particular strengths in sustainable architecture. There are two research groupings: Sustainable Architecture and Habitat. The University’s interdisciplinary culture presents exciting opportunities for collaboration, such as the interactive show garden controlled by Twitter, which won a Gold Medal at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
